Oath of Lieges


At the beginning of each player's upkeep, if that player controls fewer lands than any of his or her opponents, the player may search his or her library for a basic land card and put that card into play. The player then shuffles his or her library.

Increasing Devotion is really fun in this deck. Liliana, Dreadhorde General gives me Krav fodder. Living Death is good recursion. Another fun card would be Oath of Lieges . If you want fast tokens and some fun stuff - Parhelion II . I think Reya Dawnbringer could be good in this deck. I do like this a lot - it is not my style but this is clearly well thought out.

If you want to see how I built them, check out my Forbidden Love deck.

Thanks! I was not aware that deathtouch interactions work like that. That definitely adds some interesting removal options. I'm a big fan of Lightning Volley , that sounds awesome.

And more political cards are always welcome. If I understand correctly, you could even deny others the effect of Oath of Lieges by targetting the players themselves, right? That's even better.

Thanks for the suggestions!

fun deck! A couple things come to mind.

Deathtouch is not limited to combat damage. An Arcbond , Lavamancer's Skill Power of Fire or Lightning Volley can help your assassins assassinate a lot more hapless victims

I like that humble defector is in here Soldevi Sentry and Wall of Shards are other great political pieces (although wall of shards has shot up in the past couple weeks with all the new snow decks going around, might want to wait to get one) Oath of Lieges is probably my favorite political card. Nobody wants to kill you.

Hey Chandra585,

Thanks for your comment and upvote. I'll try out Mistveil Plains , but I think that it won't really do anything for me as I want my lands to ETB untapped, as I want to use the most of my mana to cast creatures. I really like Knight of the White Orchid , so that will be going in. I think I already have enough removal, so I don't think that Crib Swap will be going in. I like Tithe , but I'm not going to spend $20 on a card like that, so if I can find one in my dad's old collection, then I'll try to fit it in. I'm not a big fan of giving my opponent lands, as they'll just get even more ahead of me, which is why I won't put in Oath of Lieges . I'll try to find room for Wrath of God .

Thanks again,


Hey Chhris,

Thanks for your comment, upvote, and your opinion on which direction I should take this deck. Do you think Helm of the Host is good for this deck, even though it doesn't trigger Oketra with the copy tokens? I can create multiple Oketras, and me casting creatures will get more value. But on the other hand, it requires 2-3 turns for it to work, and the Helm is prone to removal. Also, what do you think about cutting Luminarch Ascension and Coat of Arms for more Anthem effects that are more consistent in giving pumps and Dreamstone Hedron ? What else do you think I should cut?

Thanks again,

I would reccomend Mistveil Plains as well as Knight of the White Orchid , Crib Swap , Tithe , Oath of Lieges , and maybe some board wipes the forever faithful Wrath of God . All in all, this is a pretty good deck.

How about swapping out Mortify and Putrefy for Utter End and Anguished Unmaking ?

As for cheap ramp, check out Oath of Lieges .

@ SentientRhombus , thank you for your feedback/ suggestions :) I had Oath of Lieges in my decklist for quite some time and made good use of it, that was until my playgroup made some changes regarding the overall powerlevel... Suddenly the good old Oath was enabling them to much, resulting in game-wins in my opponents side as early as turn 5/6 (My Zedruu-deck usually can't win before turn 11/12... most of the time later, regarding its ridiculous wincons...). So I sadly needed to cut it from the list. I never thought about using it together with Paradox Haze though... that's awesome <3 I think I will give it another chance. Your Idea to combine it with Surveyor's Scope is also brilliant, I just don't know if I can fit that one in...I really want to try it though... so many cards, so many choices... Brand just hasn't been of much use for me as the deck stands right now, I totally see its value in combination with cards mentioned above though so I might look that through as soon as I try it out ;)
